Burnt Bridge Cellars 2015 Les Collines Vineyard Syrah, Walla Walla Valley, $35
The impressive pedigree of Les Collines Vineyard in the Walla Walla Valley preps the palate to be amazed, and this Syrah delivers. It’s spicy right from the start, with black pepper and a slight hint of jalapeño. Sturdy acid supports the fruitiness, letting the blackberry jam tones shine through without being flabby. This won a gold medal and best of class sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition, and it’s not the first time our panels have enjoyed the Les Collines Syrah produced by this urban winery in downtown Vancouver USA.
